Sen. Lindsey Graham On The Political WAR In Washington | Huckabee



over the past couple of weeks there has been a lot of news out of Washington also a lot of overheated political theater to help us sort out which is which I recently spoke with the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee and my friend Senator Lindsey Graham take a look senator delighted to have you with me I want to begin talking about the infamous squad the president seems to have gotten himself in an incredible battle helped us all understand some historical framework for a president having it out with a couple well with four freshmen Congress women I don't know if there's any historical precedent for what Donald Trump has gone through since he's been elected the problem is they wanted to impeach him the same day that got sworn in before Muller even issued his report so the problem is that the four people he's arguing with hate his guts they don't recognize he's president and he's fighting back and their agenda for America would destroy our economy and to our friends in Israel that would be the end of Israel as we know it so I'm glad the president's fighting back just don't make it personal make it about policy I'm glad you brought up Israel I just was there last week there's some real anxiety though that if something were to happen to president Trump Israel doesn't have the friend that it currently has and I think they all recognize how critically important this president has been in bringing some stability to the Middle East and specifically to Israel if it's near and dear to your heart explain to our audience why this truly does matter common values and common enemies Israel's of democracy were democracy Israel's religiously tolerant so are we you can have your say in America no matter what your background same in Israel it's the one place Mike I feel safe visiting in the Mideast as a Christian they've done a great job of protecting Christian holy sites and every other religion religious sites common enemies name one group that wants to stir story Israel that doesn't want to destroy us Iran is trying to develop a nuclear bomb not a power plant they will use it against Israel unless somebody stops them Donald Trump is standing up to the Ayatollah who's a religious Nazi there's so much at stake in this election for us to stay safe here at home against radical Islam we got to have a strong military and we got to keep our foot our foot on their throat or they'll come here again and when it comes to Israel if somebody doesn't stop Iran Israel's in a world of hurt and this is why I like the president so much how much pressure has the president put on Iran and what's been the effect of it – to try to bring them to their senses if if that's possible well what he's brought them to their knees economically you know I grew up in South Carolina and my dad had a restaurant and a bar and I grew up in the back and the one thing I learned is if a guy's threatened to cut your throat don't buy him a knife given the Ayatollah 150 billion dollars of the dumbest thing in history he's took the money to dismember the Mideast to build up his military and so their economy is in a nosedive because of the sanctions the presidents put him in a real box he's willing to work with them but here's what I'll tell you a good deal looks like they can have nuclear power but they can't enrich or reprocess because when they tell you they don't want a bomb they're lying and here's what I believe if the Ayatollah had a nuclear bomb he would use it against the Arabs and the Israelis and we can never let that happen you mentioned impeachment earlier I'm gonna get right back to that because I mean there's not one of the million chances that the US Senate would ever actually remove Donald Trump so what's the point of the house even threatening this sword over the head of the president they're driven by hatred of this president they're out to get him and they're 31 Democrats who represent congressional districts that Donald Trump won if they vote for impeachment we take back the house if they don't vote for impeachment they probably get a primary so this is a nightmare for the Democratic Party and would be terrible for this president in the country to go through impeachment without any real evidence to justify it senator I've actually felt a little sorry for Nancy Pelosi I can't believe I'm saying that my gosh yeah having trouble controlling for freshman I mean this has never happened to a speaker that I can never remember well we've had our moments as Republicans but when you add up what these four members of Congress want to do they'll want to impeach the president they don't want to take your health care away from you they want to basically side with those who want to destroy Israel rather than with Israel they're green New Deal means there's no way to get to Hawaii unless you can swim or you know I guess take a rowboat the bottom line is their agenda is really radical in a striven by hit by hatred of this president Trump's gonna win and one of the reasons he's got to win is that the face of the Democratic agenda is now represented by these four female members of Congress who are way out of touch with the American people there's been very little progress on immigration even though the president more than a year ago sat down and basically offered an extraordinary opportunity to resolve daca in exchange for a very modest contribution toward border security well anything happened before the election are we just gonna have to suck it up and wait till after 2020 I think some things can't happen it must happen it's no longer an option regarding our border we're on track to have a million people come here legally most of them some Central America if we don't change our laws might this never stop so if you bring a small child to our border from Central America we have to release the entire family after 20 days that's not enough time to adjudicate the case if you claim asylum coming from Central America your hearings two or three years down the road nobody ever shows up my bill would require asylum claims to be made in the home country of Mexico not in the United States and my bill would allow the Department of Homeland Security to have time to adjudicate a claim involving a minor so we don't have to release them finally I just got back from the El Paso sector we released 52,000 people already this year because we don't have enough space to hold them we don't want to separate families so we let them go I want to adjudicate families not separate them we need to change our laws I think that's possible because if we don't we're gonna lose complete control of the border senator we've known each other a long time my final question are you having fun yet I'm having the most fun that the law would allow as a politician in Washington DC Donald Trump has made my day he's been a really good president on the things that I care about conservative judges a strong military the bottom line is I'm enjoying myself immensely pegaso president Trump anything and everything is possible well we've enjoyed having I hope to do it again thanks and keep the faith and keep the fight I thanks to Senator Lindsey Graham for joining us and we wish him well and working across the aisle without having to wear a suit of armor by the way you can keep up the latest news on the senator a
